Misbehaving Xstrata worker caught on video

Security camera footage showing a water truck driver spraying another worker on an Xstrata mine in north Queensland has gone viral after being uploaded to YouTube.

The video was allegedly taken at the Mount Isa Mines operation, and has racked up over 20,000 views since being uploaded late last month.

Video shows the truck approaching a tunnel on site and spraying a worker standing nearby.

While the employee yells abuse at the driver, his insults have little impact, and on exiting the tunnel the truck sprays the worker a second time.
